Hypocrisy Knows No Bounds

A guy came into my store the other day, picked up the Cubs baseball schedules on the counter and slammed them back down.

"Throw these out! I hope they lose every game."

A Sox fan. I smiled and gave him my usual spiel that if everybody rooted for the same team, sports would be boring. He grumbled off.

A couple days later the same guy strolled in sporting a Philadelphia Flyers cap.

"Flyers?" I queried as he came to the counter.

And he said -- I kid you not...

"Don't be a hater."

This story has no end.

Words are only symbols and sounds. They need to be backed by actions and substance.
